Richard Madeley admits it’ll be ‘weird’ hosting This Morning after 18 years

Broadcasting veteran Richard Madeley reckons it'll be a 'weird' experience taking up the This Morning presenting gig for the first time in 18 years.

He and wife Judy, a fan favourite presenting duo, hosted the show back in the late eighties until 2001.

They're set to return later this morning, filling in for other presenting couple Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford.

Taking to Twitter , the 63 year-old wrote that it'll be strange returning to the studio next door to Good Morning Britain, on which he's regularly appeared.

He wrote: "It's gonna feel v weird, especially as the TM studio is next door to GMB's, which I'm always coming and going from. Hmm…tie, or no tie?…"

After leaving This Morning, Richard and Judy had their own show – Richard and Judy – which ran until 2009.

Richard and Judy were always fan favourites on the show, especially for their often scathing humour at each other's expense.

Ahead of their their return, Richard gushed of the show: "This Morning holds a very special place in our hearts, so we couldn't be more delighted to take the helm once again."

The pair made a brief return to the show in August this year, when they were joined on the sofa by Love island runners-up Tommy Fury and Molly-Mae Hague.

During the show, former Saturday Rochelle Humes joked that Richard and Judy could fill in for her.
